Nintendo prefers Super Mario Run’s payment strategy to Fire Emblem Heroes

Coming from Nintendo’s Tatsumi Kimishima, as well as an unnamed senior company official…

- revenue from Super Mario Run “did not meet our expectations”

- Nintendo has no intention of switching focus to freemium games

- “Fire Emblem Heroes’ is an outlier. We honestly prefer the ‘Super Mario Run’ model.”

I have to say, I also prefer Super Mario Run’s payment style. I’d rather pay an upfront amount and never have to pay again, rather than have gameplay mechanics tied to microtransactions. I like when a game gives me all it has to offer for a set price. I don’t think either way is wrong, but Super Mario Run’s style is my personal preference.
